NADAL WINS LATE-NIGHT BATTLE OVER FISH


Second seed and last year's finalist Rafael Nadal defeated eighth seed Mardy Fish 6-2, 3-6, 7-6(3) on Sunday in Group B at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

Nadal hit 18 winners and committed 27 unforced errors overall, compared to 35 winners and 50 errors for Fish. The match lasted two hours and 53 minutes, ending at 11:29pm.


"It was a very important victory for me, for my confidence, to start the tournament with positive feelings," said Nadal. "I think I played a very good first set after the break from the beginning. The second was hard. I made a big mistake at 0-1, 40/15 for me in the beginning of the second. That [gave him] a lot of confidence and after that, all the match was close. The third set was a little bit more crazy, up and down. I was seriously really lucky for the victory, and I for sure am very happy."Looking ahead to Tuesday night's match against Roger Federer, Nadal said, "It will be a challenge for me. He's playing fantastic, winning two tournaments in a row, and now today [against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga]. It will be a very difficult match."
